RARE-NET aims to formulate and evaluate innovative research hypotheses on active aging in a multidisciplinary setting optimizing the opportunities that are offered by various research areas: Social, Psychological, Cognitive, Biological, Engineering, and Computer Science. The aim is to become highly visible and competitive in the field of aging research gathering dedicated research funds.

From an educational point of view, RARE-NET wants to contribute to the development of alternative learning methods and the creation of interdepartmental university career profiles on the theme of aging (biological and cognitive), of well-being in the working environment linked to the elderly (in the final phase of one’s career and in the transition to retirement), and how technology can promote active aging.

The RARE-NET also tries to promote interaction with small and medium-sized enterprises to encourage the implementation of technological solutions to increase the independence of the elderly and encourage the implementation of good practices in management in general and in the public administration in particular.
